If you’ve ever had to open a door in your home using your smartphone, then you probably don’t need to worry about a door opener going haywire in your smart device.
That’s because automatic door designs are coming to a home automation smart device near you soon.
These designs rely on sensors that can tell the user exactly how far apart they are from the door.
A smart home automation door sensor uses sensors to automatically open and close based on the distance between the user and the door, according to a report by security researcher Michael J. Graziano.
Graziano’s report, titled Smart Home Automation: The New Era of Door Opener Design , suggests that the door sensor will be able to detect the user’s position and open automatically, based on his or her location.
To do this, a device with sensors and software will be developed.
According to Graziere, this device will allow for automatic door opening based on a user’s location and the distance he or she is from the device.
The report goes on to explain that the device will be “comparable to a door knob” that would be used to open the door and close it, and that it will be a door-locking device, similar to locks used in cars and other cars.
According to the researchers, it is also possible to integrate a door sensor into your smart door control system to detect if the door is locked or unlocked.
In this scenario, if the sensor detects a door is unlocked, then the door will be opened automatically and the user will be locked out.
The door sensor would also detect if a user was in the house and open the doors automatically when the doorbell rings.
The researchers also suggest that the technology could be integrated into smart thermostats, smart home appliances, smart lighting, and smart lighting smart doors, to name a few examples.
As for the devices themselves, they will be built into your home automation software, such as Nest, ZigBee, or similar systems, according the report.
The researchers suggest these smart door sensors will work with existing smart door technology, but that there may be room for additional technology.
